Introduction

So, your Paragon build is connected to your QuickBooks Online account and you're looking to take the next steps? Great! With all of your reference data already imported into Paragon you are ready to start exporting your payments and transactions. 

This article will walk you through how to set up and automatically export both your make and receive payments from Paragon to QuickBooks.

 From anywhere in Paragon, navigate to the QuickBooks setup screen from the settings page.
  




Simply tick the box whilst in edit mode and the attribute will be activated - Don't forget to save!



Next, you will need to make sure that you have previously exported a vendor invoice from your Paragon build to QuickBooks

Once you have created and exported your necessary vendor invoice(s), you will now need to create a make payment from that exported vendor invoice.
